Tesco Pay+, our own mobile payment app, was designed to help customers to both pay for their shopping, up to the value of £250, and collect Clubcard points with just one scan of their mobile phone.
“Since we rolled out the app, we have seen customers really embrace the technology and today are pleased to announce that we have reached over 500,000 Tesco Pay+ customers. This milestone marks both our dedication to the development of Tesco Pay+ as well as our continued commitment to offering genuinely helpful services to Tesco customers."
